Flesh and Spirit
Photographs by Claudio Edinger
Essays by Simonetta Persichetti and Nan Richardson
For the past thirty years, Brazilian photographer Claudio Edinger’s roving eye has taken him down many alleyways of life, searching for the spirit in the flesh, or the body of the soul. He has captured the Hasidim in Brooklyn, the inhabitants of the notorious Chelsea Hotel in Manhattan, the insane in asylums in Sao Paolo, and the parading denizens in Brazil`s unequalled carnevale. Edinger captured the life and flesh at Venice Beach, Copacobana Beach, Old Havana, and the twisting streets of Calcutta.

He has been featured in eleven books, eight award-winning titles. This book is the first ever anthology of the prolific photographer`s work, which Peter Howe, former photo editor of Life, described as combining "the keen observation of a brilliant photojournalist with the true insight of an artist."




Good Girls
Photographs by Maya Goded

A young artist in search of answers to the secrets and meanings enclosed within women`s bodies--issues of inequality, transgression, religion, virginity, maternity, age, and desire--sets out alone to find the truth. Her wanderings take her into the heart of downtown Mexico City, the dark alleyways behind the National Palace, in a quarter called La Merced. Life in the tenements (vecindades) and hotels, trade, the close contact with thieves and homeless children, drug-trafficking, apart from the religious devotion manifest in its temples and churches, define the character of this neighborhood that, for more than four centuries, has been a privileged space for prostitution. That was the door which allowed her to see how it was like--the world that authorities and society in general prefer not to mention, or which they classify as an underworld of violence and "lost" women, the bad ones, society`s dark side; that world we all are a part of, whether we want to--whether we care--or not. We see the face of the Magdalen in these fleshy, soulful, life-filled, lusty pictures and in the fascinating interviews that accompany them.
